Ohio Breweries Headed To CANvitational


INDIANAPOLIS — The sixth annual Sun King CANvitational is returning to downtown Indianapolis on Sept. 8.

Touted as the Midwest’s largest canned craft beer festival, this year’s CANvitational will feature more than 55 craft breweries from across the county that can their beers. Breweries will offer samples of craft beer, and patrons can enjoy local food trucks and music, all in an urban downtown atmosphere. All proceeds from the event will benefit six central Indiana not-for-profits.

Ohio breweries participating include Rhinegeist and Madtree Brewing, both of Cincinnati, Warped Wing Brewery of Dayton and Platform Beer Co. of Cleveland.

“For our sixth year hosting the Sun King CANvitational, six central Indiana charities will benefit from the festival proceeds,” said Dave Colt, Sun King Brewery co-founder and head brewer. “Sun King has invited over 55 can craft beer friends from near and far to join us in celebration, and we are excited to announce this year’s CANlaboration is with Founders Brewing of Grand Rapids, Mich. Founders has been instrumental in the craft beer movement and our CANlaboration will be released during CANvitational.”
